Thanksgiving Friendship Poem

During Thanksgiving, we think of all the things we are thankful for. And for many of us, the friendships we have are at the top of our list. Let a poem remind you of the blessing of a friend.

Expressing thanks for friendship can be done in my ways. Verbally expressing it lets our friends know how much we love and appreciate them. Sending a note, in which you can include a poem is another way. (you can find a further collection of Thanksgiving poems.) Just let your friends know you are grateful that they are in your life.

Sometimes, especially at Thanksgiving, we can look at material things and be thankful. But our relationships are something that money can never buy, and a true friend must never be taken for granted. Not just at Thanksgiving but all year through make sure your friends know how much you value them!

Thanksgiving Friendship Poem

  1. Thanksgiving For My Friends
    by Emerson

    I awoke this morning with
    Devout thanksgiving for my friends,
    The old and the new.

    Shall I not call God, the Beautiful,
    Who daily showeth himself
    So to me in his gifts?

    I chide society, I embrace solitude, and yet
    I am not so ungrateful as not to see the wise, the lovely,
    And the noble-minded, as from time to time they pass my gate.

    Who hears me, who understands me,
    Becomes mine a possession for all time.

  2. What A Blessing
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Friends of mine are true and kind
    They are always there when I'm in a bind.
    And when the happy times find me
    We celebrate together with glee.

    When I think of thanksgiving
    I'm thankful for my life and living
    But most importantly, I am thankful for
    The friends that come through my door.

    Life would not be the same
    Without my friends in the game
    We share the ups and downs
    We cry and we laugh like clowns.

    So this Thanksgiving day
    To my friends, I want to say,
    What a blessing you are to me
    I pray, a good friend to you, I'll always be.

  4. Friendship
    Poet: D. W. Holt

    How sweet the tones of Friendship,
    When borne from heart to heart
    Upon life's varying breezes,
    Which joy and grief impart!

    They calm dark waves of sorrow
    Which o'er the bosom roll;
    They speak of joy to-morrow.
    And flowing tears control.

    Still purer those emotions,
    When heart with heart can join
    In paying their devotions
    To Heaven's hallowed shrine;

    When faith our vision brightens,
    And hope, with anchor sure.
    Earth's purest pleasure heightens,
    And heavenly joys secure.

    When soul with soul aspiring
    Above these gloomy shades.
    And eyes with joy admiring
    That crown which never fades.

    What, then, though death should threaten
    To make us soon his prey.
    With prospects bright for heaven
    We'd gladly soar away

    This Thanksgiving let me say
    I am thankful for the day
    And for friends like you
    You make a difference, yes you do.

    Friends can be a blessing from above
    Friends like you I do love.
    Thank you for all you do
    My friend, I am thankful for you!
